Despite boasting a wide array of non-lethal weapons, beating Watch Dogs: Legion as a pacifist may not be possible.
In an interview with Twinfinite, Legion‘s creative director Clint Hocking went into detail on the game’s non-lethal weapons. Most interestingly, he admitted that he “actually [doesn’t] know” if the title can be finished non-lethally:
“I’m not going to say it was a goal for us to say that players can beat the game without killing anyone –maybe you can, I actually don’t know. It’s not a goal for us; the goal was to make sure we have robust non-lethal options for players.”
Other information was revealed during the interview, including the admission that roughly half of the game’s weapons will be non-lethal. For the game to feature such a strong non-lethal system, then the fact a pacifist playthrough is impossible seems odd.
Watch Dogs Legion releases March 6 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Yesterday, news broke that the game’s map may be larger than Grand Theft Auto V‘s.
